I'm considering the purchase of the MF656CDW color laser printer. It appears as though the 067 toner cartridges will print a lot of pages, but I read the printer is shipped with 'starter' toner cartridges. I'm a bit concerned that I'm going to have to soon spend another $300+ on new cartridges. Any idea how many pages are expected from the starter cartridges?
Thanks for any info! I guess it's been a long time since I purchased a printer so 'starter' cartridges are a new concept for me.
Hi, according to Canon's website the MF656Cdw ships with "Cartridge 067 CMY: Starter 680 Yield / Black, Standard: 1,350 Yield." I was a little unsure about whether to interpret this as both the black and color toners being starters or just the color toners being starters given the wording. But I also happen to have gotten one of these printers just a couple of days ago so I just checked the toners and only the CMY toners are labeled as starters.
So it appears 680 color prints and 1350 black and white prints are what you can expect from the included cartridges. Hopefully that's helpful 🙂
Page yield is also affected by % of ink/toner coverage per page.
